The brand new Rx 550 2gb(asus) was delivered this morning.

Node lite's power indicator light(on the board) will not turn on with the Rx 550 installed, and the led light on the stock ac adapter blinks(no light at all on the other one with 120w ). Node lite will not power on when the rx 550 is installed.

Welp, best I can hope is that Nvidia releases the Pascal Mac driver soon.

That sucks to hear @buchiko, I'm not sure what could have gone wrong with your 1050ti and Node Lite, what was process your process setting it up and what ports were you using? 

After my last post, I went through the whole process again. The first thing I did when I installed windows 10 home was manually stop windows auto updates. Since then, everything with my 1050ti and Node Lite has been working perfectly for the past couple of days.

The Win10 of mine was not a newly installed, it has auto update on and had been fine working with Thunder3 and the 1060, but I did stop using the Thunder3 since June.

I used DDU to remove the Nvidia driver I had for the 1060, that way the system stopped crashing as soon as Node Lite and 1050ti connects. Then did a clean installment of nvidia driver, but when I restart, screen freezes at Win10 logo screen, won't boot. Everything's normal again if I unplug Node Lite, but now it's back to crashing upon connecting Node Lite.

I always used the left ports to connect to Node lite.

Thanks for the update, I'll try reinstalling Windows and disabling auto update and see if that works.

BTW did you mean you never installed any Win10 patches even manually after reinstalling the system?

HEY HEY HEY!

New Firmware Update for Node Litehttps://www.akitio.com/firmware/node-lite-firmware

Can only be updated on Windows, on Thunderbolt Software 16.2. There is no Mac update tool due to restrictions. I believe the same method used to update the Node on TB3 MBPs works for the Node Lite as well. Give this new FW a shot guys!

Disregard the File Description, File Name and Version of the update file. Our webmaster is aware of it and will make the appropriate changes on Monday. It still works as should.

Ha. Ok. Would you think it's safe to buy a 570 gpu for Mac and windows use with the node lite?
